Media: starting an operation in Syria, Russia has acquired many like-minded people in the Middle East

For the short time that Russia is conducting a military operation in Syria, she managed to win over some of the important players in the region to one degree or another, according to a publication in the pages of the Pakistani Daily Times.




“One month after the start of the military campaign in Syria, Moscow begins to disclose its strategic plans. Russia plays a leading role in the negotiations on a political settlement in Vienna. Many politicians and diplomats, not only in Russia, but also in the Middle East and the West, consider that Russia has a better chance of ending the conflict in Syria than anyone else, ”the author quotes RIA News.

According to him, Moscow’s actions in Syria are only a small part of the Russian plan in the Middle East.

"For a long time, Russia was not satisfied with the dominance of the United States in the region, but recently the situation has begun to undergo changes- writes journalist. - The Obama administration proved weak and passive in this situation, allowing Moscow to determine the rules of the game. The Kremlin has managed to conclude alliances with most of the important players in the region during this time. ”

Iraq, Egypt and Israel began to actively establish cooperation with the Russian Federation. “These countries, perhaps, do not fully approve of Russia's actions in the region, but they are very impressed with the fact that Vladimir Putin has managed to annoy the Americans,” the publication believes.

In addition, the struggle with the IG significantly brought together the positions of Russia and Iran. But on the other hand, Turkey and Saudi Arabia complicated the life of Moscow, because they confused their strategic plans in the region.

Nevertheless, “Turkey needs Russia more than the other way around, and Saudi Arabia, despite its dissatisfaction, hopes for interaction with Russia,” the journalist said.

“In this regard, Russia managed to neutralize critics from the Middle East,” the author concludes.

    Like-minded people used to be, they just now have strengthened their views.
    The United States, with its idiotic policy of controlled chaos, is pushing away more and more sane people. In the east, not all simpletons.
    True, for "stable friendly" relations with some of them, Russia needs to have modern and combat-ready armed forces. Good must be with fists. Strong are better friends.

        Who besides the Saudis was happy with this?
        the fight against IS significantly brought the positions of Russia and Iran closer. But Turkey and Saudi Arabia, Moscow’s actions complicated life,
        Losing the role of the “beholder” in the region. laughing
        The East is a delicate matter that we take for a favorable attitude, in fact, it may turn out ... what
        But do not lose heart, with the successful completion of the mission, the political strengthening of Russia will pay back all the costs.

        The term "friendly state" in politics is a versatile concept. There may be friendly people and an unfriendly government and vice versa. You can spend 70 years in the USSR, and 20 years after its collapse declare Russia an enemy. Under the USSR there were many imaginary "friends", such is the policy of dividing Europe after the Second World War.
        Examples of friends: Cuba - friends, Bulgaria - friends (or not friends) in the setting, Poland - you understand ...
        In the east, naturally, there are first and second and third.

        Yes, where are all these friends? Well .. at the European Union. As a servant of Deutschland. Germany after half a century they still raped. But we will celebrate 9 anyway.

        What are you talking about? If you are talking about politicians, then the concept of friendship is absent (if it is not considered a curse word).
        And the people have a good memory, sometimes forever. (We don’t take into account mankurts and Ivanes who don’t remember kinship.)

        Friends have not gone anywhere.
        Syria for example. She refused all sorts of "nishtyaks" when she was offered to let the gas pipeline through her territory from Qatar through Turkey to Europe. Not only that, for failure - it pays a terrible price: it fights for Russia (Gazprom) instead of Russia. It also incurs colossal losses.
        If Syria is not our friend, then what requirements should the concept of friendship meet in your opinion?

          Syria for example.

          That's right, Comrade Sukhov. Only a year and a half ago, having grappled here at VO with my namesake and former fellow countryman Atalef, I wrote that in this rotten world Russia has so few friends that, perhaps, there will be too many two hands to count them. So: Syria is one of them. And then, in April 2014, when Syria was already torn to pieces by ghouls of all stripes, the country collected and sent ... humanitarian aid to Russia, namely oranges for orphanages. And, it seems, a trifle, but the fact itself: WHAT country for WHICH country did this, and in WHAT situation. No wonder that the friendship of Russia and Syria is like a sickle of Faberge, starting with Batrack Abram and ending with ... at least the same Atalef. Well, after a year and a half, Russia now presents to the Syrians evidence of their sincere friendship.

    The fact that Egypt, Israel, and Turkey turned out to be free from state pressure is more likely Obama’s flaw than Putin’s success. It will be more difficult for him to organize the Middle East world than the United States, relying solely on force and ensuring the instability of BV as the main condition for its dominance.
    But the "peace of Putin" will be more stable and durable than the "missile-bomb democracy" of the United States

      The United States is simply stupidly trying to bring everyone to the same denominator and impose democracy in countries with its centuries-old foundations. As before, Americans were famous for analysis and the ability to maneuver in the external arena, now even after Afghanistan they have not drawn conclusions from their failed policies.

        Why is US policy a failure? They had the same policy of corral of other countries (competitors) in the Stone Age and remained. They have one analysis. The poorer the neighbors the richer I. Protect the Saudis and the Jews? Understand. They are little brothers (like a cat or a dog). In case of conflict, they are assigned the role of a dog. If anything, you can sacrifice a dog. Fortunately, the choice of dogs is large.

        And secondly: there is selfish interest.
        If the states would end the Middle East, they would take on someone else.
        Who else is trying to conduct an independent policy?
        Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Cuba.
        By the way, they have already taken over Cuba — they drove the “Trojan horse” in the form of lifting sanctions and restoring relations — now wait for the sugar or tobacco revolution. what

      There are no honest relationships in politics. You yourself can be honest, but hoping that one of your “politician friends” will be honest is the height of naivety.
      But, if the truth is on your side, then that means a lot, of course. This is the foundation of the basics.

    “We'll wait and see.” ... For many years, they helped and tried to make friends, but these guys are excessively cunning, they want to grab here and there. Remember the relationship with the UAR, hereinafter referred to as the ARE. Russia had to take care of itself for some time, but “a holy place doesn’t be empty” ... From where we left, to the sphere of various circumstances or weakened our economic and military assistance, brisk lads from across the ocean immediately took this field. It is now more difficult to regain lost ground, although we now do not bear the "communist danger" ...

    Russia has changed the entire balance of power in the Middle East. Secular regimes that seemed eternal in a number of Arab countries were overthrown by Muslim extremists with external support. Somewhere, the situation was brought under control, as, for example, as a result of a military coup in Egypt, somewhere, through incredible efforts, like in Syria, it was possible to keep the situation under the control of government forces. By carrying out an air operation in Syria today, we are preventing the destabilization of the situation in the Middle East, and finally in the Caucasus and Central Asia.

    Atomic bombs on Japanese cities, here you have almost native nations. We put millions to save civilians and not destroy the cities of Prague, Krakow, Budapest, etc.
    There is no friendship, there is fear and respect. Amers are terribly respected, doesn’t they know what they will throw off their sore head on yours? Russians, well, they will still feed with porridge, for all our "exploits in relation to them, and even restore, inadvertently spoiled!
    Here is a cynical dilemma for you, to be friends or respect!

    It’s not a lot of strange to read about friendship from adults, first give the concept of the word friendship. The GVP gave a clear assessment of Russia's actions in Syria: “we protect first of all the interests of Russia ...”, where do you see friendship? It was exactly the same with the USSR in the east Europe, first of all, the interests of the country, everything else is an accompanying result.
